As part of Dealerscope’s annual buying group roundtable, group directors shared their views on the potential profits and overall importance Ultra HD 4K TV will have on the independent CE retailer channel. Follow Dealerscope.com for more outtakes from the interviews.
DEALERSCOPE: A variety of Ultra HD screen sizes and price-points were announced at CES. When will UHD eventually replace regular HD as the main resolution on TVs? What will the average profit be in 2014?
Dave Workman, PRO Group’s executive director/COO and executive vice president of ProSource: I’d say probably Ultra HD wouldn’t supplant normal HD for five or six or 10 years. I don’t know what that number is but it’s a long way out.
